MILWAUKEE — A 14-year-old boy has been charged in the shooting of three teens last week near 36th and Glendale Avenue.

Police say the juvenile was arrested after a police pursuit led to a crash near 40th and North Avenue Thursday.

Police said they spotted a wanted person in connection with the shooting which led officers on a vehicle chase. It ended at 41st and West North Avenue when the suspect crashed into a school bus and another vehicle. Seven people were injured.

An 18-year-old also involved in the crash later died.

The 14-year-old is being charged with four counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a child.

A 17-year-old Milwaukee juvenile was charged with four felonies related to driving the vehicle and fleeing police causing death.

The 13-year-old, 14-year-old and 16-year-old victims of the shooting were injured but are recovering.
